March 20th, 5:30 - 7:30pm
The Redd on Salmon Street
831 SE Salmon Street, Portland OR 97214
Timed with the International Mass Timber Conference, the event represents the launch of an effort to support architects, builders and others looking to source climate-smart wood products.
The Climate-Smart Wood Group will focus on the following:
Understanding and making the case for use of climate-smart wood products.
Helping project teams source wood from Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified forests and restoration treatments.
Exploring ways to increase the availability of climate-smart wood products in the marketplace.
For more information, see this overview sheet or this recently released video to show the difference climate-smart wood makes in the forest.
There will be a brief program to introduce the Climate-Smart Wood Group, along with time for networking and socializing.
Drinks and appetizers will be served. This is an open and free event.
Ahead of the Regional Meetings this summer, FSC US will host webinars to provide background information and begin to spark ideas for mitigation options. Webinars will be held on the following dates and times, and will both cover the same information so please pick the date and time that work best for you. If you aren’t able to attend a live webinar, click "Watch the Webinar" below to watch a recorded version.
